My husband and I are empty nesters. It was a challenge learning to cook for just two again, but recipes like this give us delicious scaled-down dinners. —Esther Johnson Danielson, Lawton, Pennsylvania

"This is OK, but bland. I added onion and was glad I did. Maybe some red pepper flakes would be helpful, but I will never know. My husband said,"don't make it again"."

"Love this! quick and simple - perfect for a busy day! I had leftover pork loin, and added some broccoli florets, and the family loved this. No leftovers, which is always a sign that I can add this to our rotation. Thank you!"
